Microwaves

Electromagnetic waves longer than infra-red but shorter than radio, in the region of the spectrum between about 3x108Hz and 3x1011Hz and wavelengths between about 10-4m and 1m.

Sufficiently short wavelength that practical use can be made of waveguide and associated cavity techniques in their transmission and reception.
